Salvador Dali has launched Dali Haute Parfumerie, a new collection of five fragrances inspired by Dali’s jewelry and interpreted by perfumer Alberto Morillas. The five fragrances are Regard Scintillant de Mille Beautés, Voyage Onirique du Papillon de Vie, Calice de la Séduction Éternelle, Mélodie du Cygne de la Main and Fluidité du Temps Imaginaire.

Salvador Dali Fluidité du Temps Imaginaire

A recognizable floral-aquatic composition that opens by layers: from the futuristic to the sugar jasmine, tuberose and oily sandalwood.

 

fluidite_temps_imaginaire_box

A favorite of the Dalinian iconography, the watch enhances the bottle and melts with voluptuous nonchalance. Alberto Morillas makes an olfactory homage to the 1949 jewelry piece ‘The persistence of memory’, created in gold and diamonds, to illustrate the fluidity of imaginary time.

Top: Tangerine, Jasmine, Orange Flower
Heart: Woods, Tuberose, Saffron
Base: Bourbon Vanilla, Sandelwood, Patchouli, Woods

Radiant and sensual, this beautiful Peridot green fragrance illustrates time in perpetual movement, slipping away in life just as a fragrance glides over the skin, in total harmony. As a sign of union between time and space, tuberose rises towards the sky and plunges its roots deep into the earth. This flower, shaped like a long feather duster with its little white bell flowers, is native to India and was brought to Europe in 1594 by a Spanish doctor. Although it can be narcotic and heady, this gracious white flower takes on a joyful and feminine character in this creation. Bergamot gives it an airy touch, while Sambac jasmine dresses it in light. More solar than ever, Indian tuberose is paired with a woody note composed of sandalwood and vanilla to which saffron adds a few leathery accents.

 

 

Sensual and languorous, this last accord gives a final touch of seduction to the trail for as long as you can remember and until the end of time.

Salvador Dali Fluidité du Temps Imaginaire is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

Salvador Dali Melodie du Cygne de la Main

An amazing iris fragrance with doughy texture and delicate, melancholic lilac and violets

 

melodie_cygne_main_box

Touched by the elegance of the ‘Leaf veined hand’ jewelry piece in yellow gold, emerald and ruby, dreamed up by Salvador Dalí in 1949, Alberto Morillas decided to infuse his olfactory emotion into a languid and enveloping fragrance that illustrates the metamorphosis of an individual under the emotion of a caress.

Top: Bergamot, Red Fruits, Violet leaves
Heart: Ires, Heliotrope, Orange Flower, Rose
Base: Vanilla, Cedarwood, Sandelwood, Gourmand Notes

In this hand-swan melody, like Zeus in the guise of a swan to couple with Leda, Queen of Sparta, precious iris from Florence radiates and melts into the heart of a gourmand, velvety accord. Native to Macedonia, this wonderful ingredient is an age-old perfumery treasure that adds a subtle powdery note to compositions. In this fragrance, iris prolongs notes of fresh violet leaf and delectable sun-ripened fruits. The velvety, powdery rose accord then wraps itself in irresistible and original praline, wavering between the sweetness of milk and the lushness of vanilla.

 

 

An unforgettable woody trail finally leads us into an imaginary forest of cedar and sandalwood, shrouded with powerful Indonesian patchouli, in which you will long to lose yourself for a few hours or an entire lifetime.

Salvador Dali Melodie du Cygne de la Main is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

Crowned with a sacred vase, homage to the ‘Tristan and Isolde’ jewelry piece created in 1953 by Salvador Dalí in gold, platinum, diamonds and almandine garnet, the bottle becomes the vessel of a richly contrasting and beautiful golden amber fragrance. This is an intensely scented love potion to delight all the senses. It whisks you away to the land of the Thousand and One Nights, a luxuriant and opulent invitation to foreign climes, steeped in luxury and voluptuousness.

Top: Orange, Geranium, Clary Sage, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Rose
Heart: Frankincense, Cedarwood, Vertiver
Bottom: Labdanum (Rockrose), Vanilla, Patchouly

In his interpretation of Dalí’s work, Alberto Morillas chose for this unisex fragrance fresh Florida orange essence notes that naturally burst from the Dalínian chalice to lead us to the heart of a sunny floral accord of rose, jasmine and natural ylang-ylang from the Comoro Islands. A woody vibrato built around cedar wood and Haitian vetiver creates the languid base rounded out with the fullness of a beautiful amber. This majestic accord, vibrantly reminiscent of this happy and voluptuous Orient, flaunts sweet notes of vanilla, Spanish cistus labdanum and Indonesian patchouli.

 

 

Smooth and sensual, this fragrance becomes a temptation to give in to eternal seduction.

Delicately perched on the ‘Chalice of life’ jewelry piece, created in 1965, the butterfly decorating the bottle is an invitation by the Master Perfumer to take off on an imaginary flight in the wake of a sweet, light and evanescent fragrance. This enticing metamorphosis becomes iridescent and powdery, shimmering with rosy peach.

Top: Red Pepper, Neroli, Violet Leaves, Black Currant
Heart: Orange Flower, Tuberose, Liy of the Valley, Lily
Base: Sandelwood, White Musk, Cedarwood, Vanilla

Created by Alberto Morillas, this unisex fragrance gently unfolding its wings, this sensitive scent envelops us, only to trap us in its net. At the heart of its immaculate white flowers (Indian tuberose, lily of the valley, white lily) lie a game of chance and a promise of happiness. Meanwhile, the radiance of North African orange blossom absolute intensifies. This joyful flower is steeped in contrast: in equal parts fresh and cheerful, sensual and indulgent, poetic and endearing. It is innocent, but becomes carnal when it joins cedar wood under a veil of white musks.

 

 

 

Like the butterfly of life, in love with light, our heart and soul are won over by this brilliant and sensual trail, taking flight on a dreamlike journey.

Salvador Dali Voyage Onirique du Papillon de Vie is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

Struck by the piercing strength of the Dalínian eye, perfumer Alberto Morillas decided to interpret it in this creation designed to tickle both the sight and spirit. ‘The eye of time’ inspires this bottle with its scintillating gaze, dazzling with endless beauty. It gives rise to an elegant and mysterious sun-kissed fragrance that diffuses the precious and unique scent of a graceful and noble Turkish rose, made captivating by the perfumer’s magic hand. South American ambrette absolute claims its majestic place at the heart of the fragrance.

Top: Turkish Rose, Tangerine, Galbanum
Heart: Frankincence, Atlas cedarwood, Ambrette Seeds
Bottom:  Musk, Patchouly, Moss

Rare and precious ambrette seeds were known as ‘musk seeds’ by royal perfumers in the 18th century, as their delicate scent also had a sensual and intimate dimension. Reserved for rare fragrances, ambrette seeds are crushed and distilled to obtain ambrette butter, a waxy solid that is then washed to yield an absolute with a floral, fruity and musky smell.

 

In a last carnal move, earth and wood come together at the base of this original fragrance to transform our vision of the world into one of permanent enchantment.

Salvador Dali Regard Scintillant de Mille Beautés is available in 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

Salvador Dali fragrance collection introduces a new part of its history, Dali Haute Parfumerie. Five new fragrances continue the story of the great surrealist, inspired by his jewellery line and made by Alberto Morillas, creator of the first Dali perfume which was dedicated to the artist’s wife, Gala.

 

Salvador Dali Regard Scintillant de Mille Beautes2

Dalí Haute Parfumerie draws its inspiration from the permanent exhibition, ‘Dalí-Jewels’, to which the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí has dedicated a museum next to the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres.

 

Salvador Dali Calice de la Séduction Éternelle2

The collection is extremely rare and therefore highly prized. Some of the jewelry sets that make up this exhibition are now considered as exceptional as certain paintings by Salvador Dalí. Each of the jewelry pieces is an extraordinary work of art whose shapes and materials were carefully chosen and crafted by the artist. Each one expresses his rich iconography. These 39 exceptional pieces exhilarate the fragrances with a breeze of freedom, filled with seduction, dreams and poetry.

 

Salvador Dali Voyage Onirique du Papillon de Vie

For the first five Eaux de Parfum symbols were chosen which Dali appreciated and widely used: an eye (Regard Scintillant de Mille Beautes), butterfly (Voyage Onirique du Papillon de Vie), goblet (Calice de La Seduction Eternelle),  hand (Melodie du Cygne de la Main) and the clock (Fluidite du Temps Imaginaire). Dalí Haute Parfumerie follows one of his ambitions: to create jewelry pieces that please the eye, while raising the spirits and touching the heart.

 

Salvador Dali Melodie du Cygne de la Main

Like a jewelry piece by Dalí, the fragrance takes on a completely new dimension when it touches the skin. It enhances the wearer by giving her artistic control of her life. The fragrance collection is released in Eau de Parfum concentration in bottles of 100 ml,
